A physics teacher using a Google Glass held a lesson from CERN

    Physics teacher Andrew Vanden Hoyvel has long dreamed of visiting CERN and seeing the Large Hadron Collider. With Google Glass, his trip made even more sense, because he was able to show his every step in real time to his students in Michigan, writes Mashable.

    In February, Vanden Hoyvel became one of the few lucky ones to participate in the Google Glass Explorer program, which allows you to test glasses before they are on sale. Vanden Hoyvel, who got his points a few days before a trip to Geneva, said he quickly figured out the device.

    The video above shows how he cycled through Google Glass over the 27-kilometer tunnel of the Large Hadron Collider - more people conquered Mount Everest than cycled in this tunnel - while his students across the ocean watched with enthusiasm.

    “It is needless to say that I am the first person who has ever led a lesson from inside the LHC tunnel, Vanden Hoyvel writes on his blog. “Seeing only a small part of the whole cycle, I was amazed at the size of it all. The fact that I could share this experience with students and even answer their questions in real time is simply breathtaking. ”
